Summary of Model Assumptions

(1) Payout Patterns were generated based upon an exponential settlement lag distribution with mean lags to settlement of one year, five years,
and ten years for LOB 1-3, respectively. Thus, the payout patterns for LOB 1-3 can be characterized as Fast, Average, and Slow, respectively.
Payments are assumed to be made in the middle of each year.

(2) Interest is credited on supporting surplus using risk free rates for bonds of duration equal to the average payment lag in each line of business.
In this example, interest rates of 3%, 4% and 5% for LOB 1-3, respectively, were assumed. These are the same rates that are used to calculate
Net Present Value (NPV) reserves, interest on supporting surplus, and the NPV Reserves Capital component of Required Rating Agency Capital.

(3) For simplicity, interest rates and payment patterns are assumed to be deterministic.

(4) Profitability measures are computed before taxes, overhead, and returns on capital excess the rating agency required capital.

Example                                     Key Assumptions                                                           Purpose of Example
1    Write equal amounts of premium in three lines of business.                                Base example with no reinsurance.
Pricing is accurate, as the Plan Loss Ratios equal the true ELR's.
The ELR's are equal to 80% for all three lines. No reinsurance is purchased.
Aggregate losses are assumed to be modeled accurately by lognormal
distributions with coefficients of variation of 80%, 20% and 40% for LOB 1-3,
respectively. The correlation between LOB 1 and LOB 2 losses is 50%.

reinsurance program is purchased for LOB 1 at a 10% rate.

Model Summaries

(1) For both models, capital needed to support the portfolio risk is calculated as 150% of Excess Tail Value at Risk (XTVAR).
That is, the Company wants 50% more capital than needed to support 1 in 50 year or worse deviations from plan.
Capital needed to support the portfolio risk is allocated to line of business based upon Co-Excess Tail Values at Risk (Co-XTVAR).

(2) Returns on Risk Adjusted Capital Model (RORAC):
Expected Total Underwriting Return is computed by adding the mean NPV of interest on reserves from the simulation, interest on allocated
capital, and expected underwriting return (profit and overhead). RORAC is computed as the ratio of Expected Total Underwriting Return to
allocated risk capital, and represents the expected return for both benign and potentially consumptive usage of capital.

(3) Risk Returns on Capital Model (RROC):
(a) Risk Returns on Capital (RROC) may be thought of as a composite of the EVA and RORAC approaches to measuring profitability.
The Mean Rental Cost of Rating Agency Capital (an EVA Concept) is subtracted as a cost before applying RORAC concepts
to compute the return on allocated capital for exposing capital to potential loss.

(b) Required Rating Agency Capital is computed based upon rating agency premium and reserves capital charge factors assumed appropriate
for the Company's desired rating. Somewhat smaller factors were selected for the reinsurance line (LOB 4) under the assumption that the
Company would not receive full credit for ceded premium and reserves because a charge for potential uncollectibility would be applied.
Capital needed to support reserves for a calendar year is the product of the reserves factors and the previous year-end reserves.
Capital needed to support reserves must be calculated for all future calendar years until reserves run off.
Required capital to support reserves is the NPV of these capital amounts.

(c) The Mean Rental Cost of Rating Agency Capital is calculated by multiplying the Mean Rating Agency Capital from the simulation by the
selected Rental Cost Percentage, an opportunity cost of capacity.

(d) Expected Underwriting Return is computed by adding the mean NPV of interest on reserves and interest on mean rating agency capital to
expected underwriting return (profit and overhead). The Expected Underwriting Return After Rental Cost of Capital is computed by subtracting
the Mean Rental Cost of Rating Agency Capital. As for RORAC, risk capital is 150% of XTVAR. Capital is allocated to line of business based
upon Co-XTVAR. RROC is computed as the ratio of the Expected Underwriting Return After Rental Cost of Capital to allocated risk capital.
RROC represents the expected return for exposing capital to risk of loss, as the cost of benign rental of capital has already been reflected.

Quota Share Reinsurance Example Comparing Returns on Risk Adjusted Capital with Returns on Capital After Rental Cost of Capital
Key Assumptions: Write equal amounts of premium in three lines of business. The correlation between LOB 1 and LOB 2 losses is 50%.
A 50% Quota Share is purchased for LOB 1 with commission just covering variable costs.
Pricing is accurate, as the Plan Loss Ratio equals the ELR for all three lines. The ELR's are equal for all three lines.
